For the whole of Autumn Term we have been working hard at home with our families to try and read 50 books. We have to give our reading records to the teachers so they can give us stickers on our bookmarks. As its the last week of term it was time so see who had read their 50 books.
Mrs Ainsley came with her special prize trolley to hand out prizes and certificates. Everyone who had read 50 books got a special sticker and certificate. Then there was one super prize winner from the whole of FS2 who got a big prize. The winner was in our class!
We celebrate reading at home because it is proven that children who read at home make more progress and become better readers overall. Its important to get in a routine with reading and read a mixture of school reading books where your child takes the lead and also story books and information books where you share books with your child.
A huge well done to the children who have got their award this term. Don’t worry if you didn’t we start again after the holidays.
Parents/ Carers- if you think your child could also have read their 50 books you need to make sure you hand their reading record to a teacher in the morning. If you do so before Friday 21st they could still get their certificate.
Miss Deakin awarded this weeks Mathematician of the Week and Writer of the Week as Miss Parker spent a lot of time out of class. She was particularly impressed with these two children who showed independent learning skills in their Maths and Writing.
Our Mathematician of the Week did some amazing estimating when trying to count the jellybeans in the jar. Its hard to make a sensible estimate rather than a silly guess when there are lots of small objects but our Mathematician was able to do it.
You’re right it’s not been that long since our Writer of the Week last won this award. He has continued his hard work and kept on building his confidence into a second week and Miss Deakin noticed his hard work. What a fabulous job!
Our Mathematician of the Week showed great perseverance with a task she was finding difficult. She was able to keep going and find out the answers she needed.
Our Writer of the Week was writing down everything! We couldn’t stop him writing. This was so lovely to see.
Well done everybody 🙂
We are so proud of the children in Onyx class this week. They are really starting to demonstrate how much they have learnt during the school year and show how far they have progressed.To celebrate their amazing successes we are going to start awarding the Mathematician of the Week to the child who shows the most progress or best attitude to their learning in Maths and Writer of the Week to the child who shows the most progress or best attitude to in their writing. This is not just in activities with adults but in their independent learning as well.
We were particularly pleased with these children this week. Our Mathematician of the Week was spotted all week really engaging with Maths activities in the classroom. He was interested in not only adding numbers together-a lot of which he remembers by rote- but also in making patterns with the beads. Our Writer of the Week has not stopped writing all week. She even wrote a note to Miss Deighton asking for slime in the classroom and because she wrote it so well and everyone could read it this week the children are making slime.
Well done to both these children. We can’t wait to see what amazing learning happens this week and who gets the award on Friday.
Our Mathematician of the Week was working on sequencing numbers this week. She was able to look at the numbers and complete the sequence with the missing numbers. This involved counting in ones and twos and even counting backwards. She could confidently write the correct missing number and check her answer on a number line. Well done!
Our Writer of the Week also displayed her skills on the interactive whiteboard. She was drawing pictures of her family and then labelling them using her writing skills to sound out and write the words. She wasn’t finished there she decided she could write a sentence about them as well. Great job!
A big well done to both our winners this week- you’re getting even more ready for Year One! 🙂
It was very exciting in assembly on 19th May; we had our first Pride of Prince Edward not only just for Onyx class but for the whole of FS2!
We’re all very proud of our winner and can totally see why she was chosen to be a Pride of Prince Edward. We can’t wait to see if there will be any more before the Summer holidays.
A huge well done to our winner! 🙂
